You want snow? We got friggin’ snow. As of tonight, it must be winter. The County has noticed us that they plan to not plow, and that probably begins with this storm. It could be that winter is finally with us. About time…..

….. And all the Bucks Lake people who volunteered yesterday to learn some basic skills for taking care of sick and injured persons during winter. It was a great day, and everyone was involved and eager to learn. The skills learned yesterday will make us all so much more effective when the inevitable happens.
And, Care Flight, thank you Natasha and crew, for a most thorough lesson on the A Star. You guys are great, and that is a beautiful ship.
Thanks again to everyone…..
If you listen to the forecasts, and watch the TV weather, suddenly the storm that was supposed to arrive on Tuesday will now arrive on Monday, and with, apparently, a noticeable amount of snow.
In any event, I have the dish heaters plugged in, so unless the storm gets so heavy the signal can’t be read, we should be able to see it. If only Wild Blue would let me live stream it. They are making us use their “old” satellite, If we were on their new one, we would have the bandwidth to stream it. Every so often I connect with them to “discuss” it. No surprise that I am well known to them. But I keep trying…..
I want to confirm this is an observation, not a recommendation, since I don’t do recommendations.
I have just been watching a crew deal with a very difficult tree and its stump on Mile High Road. They have knowledgeable people, great equipment, and a professional approach. They are: Golden State Tree, out of Marysvillle and Gridley.
Like I said, not a recommendation, but I am impressed.
I haven’t done an update for a long time……, because there really was nothing new to say.
But, today we have our first real wind storm of the season. The entire lake is white caps, and the trees are really bending. I think the wind is around 25 – 35 mph. I say I think, because my anemometer is in a sheltered area and it never reads the full force of the wind.
So, it’s an indoor kind of day. OK by me…. keeping warm and comfortable.
Yes, it’s back. It only took a day and a half of trouble shooting. Every move you make in set up is populated by traps that screw up everything unless you do the process perfectly. Wonder why it has to be that way??
Yes, I know. Got into doing camera maintenance today, and that turned into a death spiral. Its software is NOT user friendly. I’m hoping a friend who is a computer wizard can be at the lake this weekend and perform a rescue. The camera will be off line till the fix is done.
The Southshore Water Association will be July 7, at 10 am at the Ward cabin, PG&E 16…….
